We had never cruised previously because we did not like the idea of a floating city, so the smaller tall ship made sense, especially when it had a cruise that included our bucket list of places to see in Greece.
We did our research and knew what to expect, and the Star Flyer exceeded in most regards, especially the food!
If tons of activity and entertainment is your goal, this isn't your best bet. If peaceful evenings on deck with no sounds but the wind thru the sales, and an intimate, yet casual setting for meals is what you like, this is for you.
The group on board is small enough that mutual respect wins out over fighting for the best deck chairs or tables at dinner. The majority seemed to be seasoned travelers that know how to act in this setting and very friendly when sharing a table or space at the bar.
So nice when the cruise director can address EVERYONE at the same time regarding excursions and ship-board fun.
I don't think we'll ever take a trip on a large mega-ship! This setting was too perfect for us
Perfect location: near, but not next to the dining room, and midship.
Actually preferred this over the larger cabins on the upper deck, since they have constant foot traffic past their window and door. We had more privacy with just a porthole.
Cabin was larger than expected and plenty of storage space.
Bathroom was small, but served its function.
Bed was long enough for me at 6' 4" and quite comfortable
Did a group tour to Cave of the Revelation and wish we would have done it on our own.
We enjoyed Ephesus more than our visit to Pompeii
